When their IDs are finished printing, the students have begun the tradition of posting them on social media, alongside an image of their inspiration. The costume inspirations range from musical icons like Beyonce to humorous movie characters like Napoleon Dynamite. Some students even do group cosplays with their friends (think of the twins from Stephen King’s The Shining.)
We’ve rounded up a handful of our favorite cosplays below. You can check out dozens more via the hashtag: #NFID20.
What a fun way to take student ID photos! If you had a favorite TV or movie character when you were in high school, who would you have dressed up as? Luke Skywalker from the original Star Wars trilogy? Debbie Harry? Mario or Luigi? Let us know on Twitter!
